Found this on the internet and from the photo, it looked OK. On arrival, the courtyard was like a rubbish tip and inside was not much better. The whole place was run down and mosquito ridden. Contrary to internet info. there is no WiFi and no restaurants. Stay away unless...you want to be near Egmore Railway Station and your budget really is 'slim'.

Simply I got a room with Bed & TV. No Water Heater, direct line, restaurant, nothing is there. Simply we can't stay Budget Hotel. Budget Hotels shoukld have basic amenities like water heater & direct line..And also repair works also going on that makes a lot of noise..

It's like a brothel shown in bollywood movies.
" Depressing " is the feeling you will get the moment you step in.
You will have died out of depression when the room interiors will kill you further.
I'm writing this review at 3:48AM from another hotel I just checked in.
So you can imagine how bad this hotel must have been that I had to walkout of this hotel at 3:15 AM and hunt for another one for the next 30 mins approx.

It's surprising that sites like Makemytrip dont care to check the authenticity of the hotel and it's rooms before putting up the pictures of the hotel. All the pictures are picked from some site or the other. Screw the graphic designer/uploader at Makemytrip.com who didn't care to check that the pictures have been stolen from google. They are not the authentic pictures

Room Tip: Step into the hotel if you have just picked a cheap hooker from the street across the railway statio...
